[quote user="DavenIII"][quote user="byron"]Yeah i know what you are talking about D... I've been there/am there thanks to the cigs... and yet I continue to smoke...quit the *******s they are killers.. Glad to here you are feeling better[/quote]
Yeah, I've been smoking for probably 14 years now? since I was 13, I've tried to quit 3 times.
This had nothing to do with smoking, I'm almost 100% sure it's Swine Flu now, that said, the respiratory shock that it caused me was kinda horrifying it's a kick in the butt, I'll get over this flu, but if I smoke much longer I might end up feeling that kind of pain and worry all the time, I can't imagine that, right now smoking makes it so I can only play a few minutes of football before taking a break, that's the biggest problem, but this flu, whether its the same or not, has shown me what it "Could" be like in the future and I don't want that....so hopefully its a strong enough mental image to stop myself.
Thats how it started with me.. I had a bad cold couldn't breath very well got over it and got another one and so on till I dicided to see a doc. Xrays showed emphysema /CPODthen a CT scan showed a spot on my right lung Doc was sure it was cancer enter Bronchoscopy to get piece for bi-op to figue what type of cancer it was.AHHH it's a long story man but in the end it wasn't cancer but for a long time I throught I was done for...months. Bottom line...Ya don't want the emphysema unless you want to be like me mike.. I will leave the subjectthere and wish you all the luck in the world kicking the habit.</P>
